Rule Breaker by Stacey Lynn is now live!
Spending the night in jail isn’t exactly how I planned to spend Christmas, but I’ve had worse holidays…
Now that I’m out, it’s time to accept my real punishment. Coaching ten-year-old terrors on the ice, in my non-existent free time. My Coach thinks it’d be good for me. Remind me where I came from. He should know I’ve tried every day of my life for the last ten years to forget.
The youth hockey league is a hell I didn’t plan on and the worst penalty possible…
Until the day a sweet, single mom cracks a joke about her kid, and then all bets are off.
I’m the best defenseman in professional hockey, but I didn’t see her coming… now what in the hell do I do? I’m not equipped for a relationship. I’m definitely not ready to have a kid depending on me, but I can’t deny she makes me feel things— want things I never imagined I could have.
I should save us both the trouble and stay far away from her. But rules were made to be broken, and I was never good at following them anyway.

Stacey Lynn has a gift of writing stories that will rip your heart in two but by the end of the book it’s whole again, Dominick and Holly’s story was what I’ve come to expect from her…a perfect five star read.
Dominick Masters hasn't always had it rough, but that was before his father passed away while he was in college then his life changed and he did everything he possibly could to help the one person he loved most, his sister Lucy. If you read the previous book in this series you'll recall Dominick getting arrested and that is where this story picks up, you do not have to read the previous book but I loved it so I would recommend it but this can be read as a standalone. Dominick doesn't get jail time because charges were dropped but he does have to do community service and pay a large fine. His community service is to coach a kids Hockey League, not too much of a hardship for the Hockey God but he's not one for kids so he's not too happy about it either.
Holly is a divorced single mom trying her best to give her son, Ben, the best life she can. Ben plays hockey because his father wants him to, he likes it but he's not really good at it but the kid has heart and determination. Ben for me was a stellar character, I loved the way he was with his mom and how stood up to his dad when the time came.
I loved how Dominick started opening up with his teammates in this book, and the way he was with Holly and Ben was amazing. The chemistry and connection that Holly and Dominick have was HOT and what most people strive for.
There is a lot going on in this story and it touches on a topic that I personally feel should have a content warning about. I don't necessarily think a trigger warning is necessary since it happens off page and is mentioned but it is a topic I wish I had known about going in because I wasn't prepared for it when it was first mentioned. If you would like to know more about this topic feel free to contact me through any of my social media accounts.
I would recommend this book to anyone that enjoys Steamy Contemporary Romances, Hockey Romances, or Single Mom Romances.
